www.totaldrumsets.com The Who remember Keith Moon and his drumming style.
Ehhh I’d rather watch and listen to Bonham in concert.
grohl beat bonham at his own game…
4.) doesn’t matter only top three are cool 🙂
No one can play this man. I loved John Bonham as much as Keith did, but his approach to playing the kit was completely different than any other drummer I have seen. His best years were up until the mid 70’s and he trashed his life, but drum playing was completely real and from the heart. I love those huge ass kits, too!
1:40 Just so people who need to hear it again can find it more easily. ^_^
John was NOT obviously the more technical drummer. Just ask yourself this, could Bonham play what Moon did in “Behind Blue Eyes”? Bonham had swagger and might but to say hes better technically is a mistake
I know the exact feeling of hilarious joy that Roger feels for Moon’s fill at 2:07
In he footage of Keith playing @ 2:23, he was 31 years old and looks like he’s in his mid-40’s. The toll his vices took on him was amazing……
keith moons mixture of surf and rock was simply the best but not only that he drum filled the whole the songs vocals, bass and guitar I rest my case
dum dum dum dum dum diddly um dum
Keith Moon inspired me to pick up the drumsticks and go wild on the drumkit doing fills!
Robert Wyatt. (Soft Machine) I think Wyatt does a great job in drumming over a recording of Syd Barrett’s guitar and vocals. (‘No Good Trying’, 1969) Those drums sound a bit like Moon’s all-over-the-place style.
And what about Phil Collins, in ‘Apocalypse in 9/8’ of ‘Supper’s Ready’, by Peter Gabriel’s Genesis? (1972)
Barrie James “B.J.” Wilson. (Procol Harum)
totally. in awe and amused at the same time.
The obvious affection for Keith from Pete, Roger and John is so touching.
That was cool
I don’t really like him either. He was in The Rolling Stone list.
Starr, Moon, Peart, Bonham and Grohl.
I’ve never heard a drummer like Keith and probably never will. He was the soul and identity of the band and had a very distinct and unique style of playing. If he only knew how sadly he is missed, in music.
i agree.Pete sounds as if he is unimpressed w/keith. Though there were times when keith’s drumming was indeed horrid, for the most part he was brilliant. He was the only drummer that i’ve heard play w/the band that made the “wall of sound” that was the Who. Simon Phillips, though a great drummer in his own right, never sounded right for the Who, same w/kenney jones. The Who needed a bombastic type of drummer to compliment Pete and John’s playing..
